Porter is a small school guy who checks all the boxes when you are looking for potential NFL players. He had solid production. The man absolutely loves football. He has the requisite size, speed, and athletic ability that has scouts sit up and take note.

Johnson has had an individual workout with the Los Angeles Rams and been to two Pro Days with one being at North Texas. His name has also been mentioned amongst the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, and several other teams. At his pro day, he ran 4.75 40-yard dash, had a 38-inch vertical jump, and bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times. On Draftscout.com, they have him rated 39th out of 156 linebackers available in the draft.
 
The two-time All-ASC first-team selection finished this year with 8.5 sacks for 44 yards and 11 tackles-for-loss. He recorded 35 tackles and had 13 quarterback hurries. In all three seasons, ETBU went 7-3 which is the first time the program has produced three straight winning seasons. He was also a part of the 2015 ASC Championship team.

https://247sports.com/Bolt/Texas-Longhorns-Football-Naashon-Hughes-signs-free-agent-contract-Green-Bay-Packers-2018-NFL-Draft-117808329

Quote
Finishing his career with the Longhorns with 139 tackles with 19.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, seven quarterback hurries, six pass breakups and two forced fumbles, Hughes was a player that the three different coaching staffs he played for viewed as a high-upside athlete with a ton of potential. The Texas coaches weren’t the only ones impressed with the athleticism Hughes possessed as numerous sources connected with several coaching staffs across the Big 12 pointed to Hughes as an athlete who flashed on film who they felt was capable of being a big-time playmaker.

Checking in at 6-3 ½ and 259 pounds during Texas Pro Day, Hughes clocking a 4.73 40-yard dash prompted longtime Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt to single out Hughes as a possible late-round draft pick. Though Hughes wasn’t selected, he will get a chance to make an NFL roster by seeing if the Packers can help him turn his potential into production.

Kevin Radar/TE/Youngstown St.
TE Kevin Rader - 6-3.7 | 250 | 34 VJ | 9-4 BJ | 11.61 60 Shuttle | 4.37 20 Shuttle | 17 Reps Bench | 4.91 40-yard dash

Bio:
Two-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-MVC and made 22 catches for 272 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. Caught 17 passes for 285 yards and two TDs as a junior.
Pos:
Underrated tight end with the size, speed and mentality to play at the next level. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, immediately gets to top speed and plays to his 40 time. Works to come free and make himself an available target, extends his hands and makes receptions away from his frame. Blocks with proper fundamentals, squares into opponents and controls them at the point. Keeps his feet moving in pass protection, makes excellent use of angles and shows the ability to slide off the edge.
Neg:
Must improve his balance. Marginally productive and was never a big part of the Youngstown State passing game.
Analysis:
Rader possesses the size, athleticism and overall skill to develop into a third tight end at the next level if given the opportunity and properly coached.

Chris Seisay/CB/ Oregon & Portland St.

https://247sports.com/nfl/green-bay-packers/Bolt/Packers-reportedly-meet-with-Portland-State-CB-Chris-Seisay--116485034

Quote
According to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, the Packers met with Portland State cornerback Chris Seisay. The Packers were at the Pro Day at Portland State and Seisay was able to put together a strong workout. Here's what Pauline had to say about Seisay's Pro Day.

At pro day, Seisay measured 6'1'' and 197 pounds, timed a better-than-expected 4.51 in the 40, 6.63 in the three-cone and 4.10 in the short shuttle. He touched 38 inches on the vertical jump and 10-foot-2 on the broad jump.

Seisay started his career at Oregon and played there for two seasons. In 18 games at Oregon, Seisay posted 55 tackles six passes defended and one interception. He left the program before the 2016 season and then transferred to Portland State. He started his career with the Vikings as a wide receiver and recorded three receptions for 66 yards in two games. He then moved back to cornerback and he registered 28 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions in seven starts. In 2017, Seisay played in eight games and recorded 24 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions.

Filipo Mokofisi/DT/Utah
6-4/295/5.25-40/18 bench

https://www.nfl.com/prospects/filipo-mokofisi?id=32462018-0002-5600-473e-2c783f3d905e

Quote
Mokofisi looks to be selected, as well, by posting two honorable mention All-Pac-12 seasons to complete his collegiate career. He started all 13 games in 2017 (11 at defensive tackle, two at defensive end), making 27 tackles, 3.5 for loss, intercepting one pass, and breaking up two others. He and Lowell Lotulelei paired up as starters in 13 games in 2016, as well, with Mokofisi credited with 45 stops, eight for loss, and five sacks. The Utah native started seven of nine games played as a sophomore (21 tackles, 3.5 for loss, 1.5 sacks), missing four games with an injury. Mokofisi started two games as a true freshman in 2014, playing in all 13 (17 stops, three for loss, 1.5 sacks).
Overview
Mokofisi lacks the body composition and physical traits of an NFL player, but his flashes as an interior rusher are intriguing. He has natural power, good hand fighting and the lateral quickness to work to the guard's edge as a rusher. He doesn't have a natural position fit so making a roster will be tough, but if he can flash enough as a sub-package rusher, he might have a shot of finding a home at some point.

Alex Light/G-T/Richmond
6-5/310
5.52-40/26 bench

https://www.willistonherald.com/national/sports/potential-nfl-path-of-ex-spider-tackle-alex-light-could/article_9437e92c-f31a-54ae-bdbd-e61cd9235df8.html

Quote
Again and again during the past several months, at Robins Stadium and elsewhere, Alex Light has gone through this lonely routine. He is teaching himself the first, and most important, duty of a center. That’s a position Light did not play in the past four years at Richmond, or the previous four at Salem High School in the Roanoke area.

The NFL draft commences Thursday and runs through Saturday, and it seems unlikely, though not out of the question, that Light, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound offensive lineman, will be selected.

Light was a three-year starter as a Spiders tackle. When injuries around him required a shift, Light played some guard. His athleticism at this time, Light acknowledges, is insufficient to play tackle in the NFL. Those tackles operate in space against world-class pass-rushers.

But guard is a possibility for Light and, perhaps, center. That’s why Light goes heavy on the sessions with the imaginary QB in shotgun formation. He snaps the ball to air and then proceeds with the footwork required of a center.

“I’ve actually told scouts I feel more comfortable at guard. They see me as a center-guard combo,” said Light, who has never snapped the ball in a game.

There are 310-pound linemen who are physically maxed out, with no room for additional growth. Light’s frame looks as if it could easily handle another 10 or 15 pounds, if recommended by an NFL employer.

Nice work danno. Have one more to add, which makes 14 and puts the roster at 90 until someone is let go.

Tyler Lancaster/DT/Northwestern
6-3.5/313/4.96-40/36 bench
https://www.insidenu.com/2018/4/26/17282660/tyler-lancaster-nfl-draft-scouting-report-projection-rankings-defensive-tackle

Quote
Tyler Lancaster may not have been invited to the NFL combine, but his Northwestern Pro Day stats line up pretty well with the defensive lineman who did attend. Throughout his career at Northwestern, Lancaster has overcome massive obstacles and proved himself to be a team leader, an incredibly hard worker and a force for running backs and quarterbacks to reckon with.
Lancaster has elite strength and leverage to his game, which makes it nearly impossible for offensive linemen to move him. He often draws double-teams and shifted protections, which creates space for other rushers to attack the quarterback.
Lancaster’s a beast when it comes to stopping the run game, but his pass rush abilities are not as strong which makes him less dynamic and less appealing to NFL scouts. He doesn’t have an elite first step or superb quickness, which is a must in the NFL.
Nosetackles are a dying breed in today’s NFL. It’s unclear where Lancaster fits in, given that he probably isn’t enough of a pass-rush threat to slot in as a 4-3 tackle.

This guys measurables and tape scream 'OLineman', wonder if the Packers are planning a switch to the other side of the ball for Lancaster.

It looks like the Packers are looking for that "diamond in the rough" at LBer. Hope that works out. And there should be a roster spot opening up if, as reported by Bob Fox, that Scott (drafted punter) has been assigned Vogel's (current punter) number (#8). If true, the Packers are apparently ready to move on.
